Format: Hardcover
Bailey and Strange have put together a fresh, helpful grammar of the Hebrew language which combines the best of previous works with their own creative artistry. Texts drawn directly from Hebrew Scriptures are utilized in order to bring the students attention to focus on the purpose for such studies: Biblical exegesis and understanding. The sentences used by Strange and Bailey are those found in Hebrew Scripture.

In order to further familiarize the student with the language, in the final exercises the student is introduced to the most used words in the Hebrew Scriptures. As Strange notes, verbs occuring more than one hundred times and nouns found more than two hundred times are listed in the vocabulary.

The general layout of the text is much like other grammars, beginning with the more basic grammatical structures, working on toward the complex and often rare constructions. The order is much like Weingreen's Hebrew Grammar, but not so complex and involved as Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar by Kautzsch. The appearance of the text is not as polished as the two texts mentioned above, in that the Hebrew letters are formed by what appears to be an IBM ball rather than typeset from Frankreuhl or other fonts. This does not in any way diminish the quality of the work itself, but it would benefit greatly from this addition.

The completeness is superb, and the overall quality is above average. If the student applies diligently to this work it can only be expected that responsible Scriptural exegesis will follow.
